High School Programming

Opening Day September 19, 2021!

We are offering an excellent a la carte program for our students this Fall! The purpose of our High School program is to offer classes that promote our teens Jewish Identity Formation while building their connections to their Jewish community and learning to live Torah. Based on our teens input, we are offering three chugim (elective classes) this year for our teens to learn more about mitzvot, middot, Jewish culture and food, and Israel. The courses are:

  • Food for Jewish Thought – a Jewish cooking class with the fabulous Chef Rona Klein,  trained at Johnson & Wales, where we’ll learn how to make essential Jewish foods, and where Jewish cuisine comes from!
  • Mitzvot in Motion – a class that will do community service projects over the course of the year and learn about the Jewish values essential to our social action and social justice work with Rabbi Mark Cohn & Becky DePalma.
  • Coming this Winter—Understanding Israel with Rabbi Mark Cohn – Rabbi Mark will take teens on an investigation of Israel through podcasts, music, and other media. This class is meant to prepare teens to be able to form their own understanding of the complexities of Israel and how to have civil discourse on this topic.

High school students are welcome to sign-up for as many of the classes (1-4) as you’d like. Each class will meet approximately 3 times per semester.

$120/class or $475 for all 4 classes. Food included at every class.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our Religious School Director, Becky DePalma at 336-722-6640 ext. 102.
